What is Laser Body Contouring? Your FAQs Answered

As we watch the world burst with new spring life, it is completely natural to look toward our own vitality. January may be a time of resolutions, but spring is the time of revitalization, recommitment, and rejuvenation. If you have been following your resolutions but still need a way to tackle stubborn fat, body contouring may be the answer!

Body contouring, sometimes called body sculpting, is a term used to describe a wide range of procedures. At Pure Body Health, we provide body contouring services that support a natural, healthy, and functional way of life. Of course, you are sure to have many questions about what this means for you. That is why we are here to answer some of your most frequently asked questions about body contouring!

Does Body Contouring Involve Surgery?

Some popular body contouring procedures, like traditional liposuction, do involve surgery or invasive techniques. However, not all of them do! There are plenty of nonsurgical fat reduction procedures that use lasers, heat, freezing, electromagnetic stimulation, and other noninvasive methods. At Pure Body Health, we stand behind the Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Laser. We chose this method because it uses low-level lasers—not to remove or destroy fat cells, but to empty them of excess fatty material in a healthy way.

What is Zerona?

The Zerona Z6 is a fat loss laser that works differently from heating and freezing methods like CoolSculpting. It uses low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to open enlarged fat pores anywhere on the body. Once those cells are opened, the excess fat seeps out and is processed as waste. Why is this safer than removing or destroying the cells?

Does Body Contouring Work?

Yes! Studies have shown that LLLT can provide a significant reduction in overall body circumference. In as few as six treatments, each lasting about 40 minutes, you can expect significant fat reduction in areas that do not respond to diet and exercise alone, revealing slimmer proportions and lost inches. LLLT has also been proven to improve the appearance of cellulite!

These lasers work by opening fat pores and processing the excess fat through your lymphatic system. Therefore, the healthier your lifestyle during treatment, the more drastic you can expect your results to be, generally speaking.

How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

The results of body contouring are permanent for patients who stick to a calorie-neutral diet before treatment and maintain a healthy lifestyle afterward. If you are struggling to lose stubborn fat, Zerona Z6 is an ideal way to reduce it. Zerona Z6 body contouring can also be a great choice for those who are ready to commit to a healthier lifestyle and want to use this procedure to jumpstart their journey to wellness.

At Pure Body Health, we consult with each patient to develop a comprehensive wellness plan personalized for your body. We will always be there to answer your questions and help you make the most of your results.

How Often Can You Do Body Contouring?

The total number and spacing of treatments will depend on your individual goals, lifestyle, health habits, and expectations. Sometimes, we recommend spacing sessions several days apart, while for other situations, several weeks are more appropriate. Initial sessions can generally be performed closer together, while subsequent treatments may require a several-week break to allow your body to recover and process the liquefied fat.

Is Body Contouring Safe?

Absolutely! The Zerona Z6 Fat Loss Laser is FDA-Approved. It has undergone 11 clinical trials to ensure its safety and is proven to produce significant results using harmless light energy. At Pure Body Health, our number one priority is your wellbeing, so we avoid recommendations or procedures that can be harmful to our patients.
